Have you ever wondered while at work if there’s a problem back at home, like electrical services breakdown? A couple of years ago, we at Wovenware created a web-based service to provide users in Puerto Rico, access to alerts delivered by the different State Government Agencies of Puerto Rico and the Federal Government.
This application allows users all over the island to register and receive email notifications when there’s an electrical breakdown in their areas. An important and essential thing about this app is that users are able to create personalized alerts based on their towns and/or areas of interest. This characteristic makes the app very useful and of course it is easy to use. Once the users register they will start receiving the alerts. This application was developed by two of our developers, during the “Hackers Boot Camp” within the framework of the Puerto Rico Tech Summit 2013.
Some of the agencies which services are featured on the site are Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica (AEE) [Electrical Energy Authority], Autoridad Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AAA) [Water and Sewer Authority], Loteria Electronica de Puerto Rico (LOTO) [Puerto Rico Electronic Lottery], NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] and IVU Loto. Since the site launched and service began in the summer of 2013, TeNotifi.co has sent over 100,000 alerts for the more than 56,000 breakdowns that have been reported since the service started.
With Hurricane Season upon us, you must be asking yourself how you subscribe to this service; well it’s very easy, go to http://TeNotifi.co and register. The process is simple and quick, as only basic information such as; name, e-mail and password are required to create an account. Shortly after this you’ll receive a confirmation email and then you access the site to set up the services and the areas of interest.
